. >> president obama is canceling a campaign appearance in florid in maryland on hold. voters hoping to cast their ballots before next week's election will have to wait at least a day after governor martin o'malley canceled all early voting for today. plenty of people lined up to get it done before the storm. voting was supposed to go till thursday but it may be extended. early voting has been suspended in the district today. i know at least in fairfax county early voting will not be happening either. >> the storm affecting lots of our community in many ways. we're here with special coverage of hurricane sandy. >> after a short break, a closer look at when we will feel the winds pick up. anncr: it's said that character is what we do... when we think no one is looking. mitt romney: believe that they are victims. anncr: mitt romney thought no one was looking when... he attacked forty-seven percent of americans. his companies shipped jobs overseas. his plan cuts millionaires' taxes, but raises yours. he'll voucherize medicare... and make catastrophic cuts to education. so remember what romney s

come and so i was a to the voters, i think we had a good relationship. i don't know what else to do. >> were going to move onto a topic, a foreign policy question. congresswoman, you come to obama administration of course we seem has been criticized for its handling of the deadly attack on u.s. consulate in libya. this attack resulted in the death of ambassador chris stevens but we also now know that he made multiple attempts to get more security and that these efforts went unheeded. do you believe that the obama administration mishandled the situation even after and also in the aftermath of the attack? what could have been done better and should be done better going forward? hochul: absolutely mishandled, and to learn how that their cries for help from people asking for additional support, and to know they were unanswered is unacceptable. estimate of the house armed service committee when we get back to washington will conduct oversight hearings and make sure that our ambassadors and all the consulate personnel across this globe are protected. we've got to make sure they have withi

become the key swing area of the state. it is growing. it has younger voters. it is a fluent. it is in an area that the previous bush's had one. but president obama made it flipped and took it by several percentage points. i think you are seeing a lot of attention in going there. this weekend, president obama will be finishing topping off his ohio campaigning in central ohio. in the past tv of cycles, we have seen the democratic candidate come up in northeast ohio and try to make that pushed. i think he is comfortable with the get out to vote efforts. he ought to go down -- he has to appeal to the swing areas. more independent voters. and you had this educated, affluent group, the base around ohio state university. and that has been critical. in the end, if you show that map, ohio is broken up, we have said it for years into 5 ohios. those five areas, plus some of the border areas, we have about seven media markets. it makes a very expensive to campaign here. in gubernatorial races and some presidential races there will go to west virginia to reach the southern ohio parts. th

? >> probably not. you can argue obama's handling of the hurricane earlier in the week might have moved the needle a little bit toward him. embraced by chris christie might have helped a little, but we are down to so few undecided voters i think opinions are pretty much hardened. melissa: what do you think about what happened with chris christie? are you cynical enough to think there was something political behind this? what do you think happened? you have to wonder to a certain extent. >> people in the northeast are so traumatized by what happened politics are truly secondary. that said, many will run for president in 2016. but you have to think if romney does lose, christie would be one of the favorites in 2016. it has to be in the back of everybody's mind. melissa: you think politically he may want to undercut romney at this point? >> if he wins, chris christie cannot run in 2016. i think the human tragedy has far surpassed politics on this story. melissa: do you want to place a bet on who is going to win on tuesday? >> fearless forecast. popular vote will be just about tied. romney

to be with the president couldn't. rozum: i'm not sure if it's quite true to say that president obama tried to provide a single-payer option. he campaign on the public option in 2008 and gathered support of many progressive voters that really did what single-payer health care. and then a single-payer was not, option was not on the table in 2009. so i think what we really need is winnable progressives in congress that will stand up and fight for what we need, which is health care for all the medicare for all which will rein in increasing health care costs. the united states spends about twice as much per capita on health care as other countries. we are about summer between 30th and 40th in the quality of care we provide, according to the world health organization. and it shouldn't be that way because we do have some of the most skilled doctors and researchers here. and so with medicare for all we guarantee access to care, and we allow patients to choose their doctors, to choose their hospitals and then we really have patient choice and a free market where doctors are competing to do better and nurses a

trail. so that is going to help matters. president obama can say, well, i'm president. and, you know, this takes priority over politics. and i think that will basically sit well with voters. >> let's talk about mitt romney. he decided to turn a campaign event in ohio into a relief effort. collecting food and collecting goods to send to the people who have been affected by superstorm sandy. good, bad, what? >> i think it was a very smart political move. again, you don't want to come off too overtly political. i think that was just the right measured response to the disaster. and i think if he went to -- you know, on a media tour of the disaster site that would seem too opportunistic, almost politically desperate. i think he made the right call there. >> the only thing is that reporters at the end of this event were shouting at him, asking him if he supported fema, if fema should disappear. governor romney didn't answer their questions. why do you suppose that was? >> because he knows that that is a potential pitfall for his candidacy, very much like his comments on the auto bailout in

.7%. and president obama won this state by a large margin back in 2008 with 9%. let's begin with top issues for new hampshire voters. guest: good morning. and before i get started i want to thank c-span and c-span radio on 15 years being on the year. it's been a very valuable resource for some of us. up here in new hampshire we are a swing state four electoral votes. it sound like a small number. but if al gore had won the four votes he would have become president. so they are very important and this state right now is a toss up. the issues are a little bit different here in new hampshire than they would be across the country. unlike a state like nevada that has a higher unemployment rate, new hampshire is at 5.7%. that's higher than it was all summer around 5.2%. this means that jobs and the economy is an issue that is front and center and it is the number one issue but it may not ring home as much as other issues. host: what areas of new hampshire are the swing areas of that state historically, have provided the winner with the electoral votes? guest: well, right now, we're seeing that the candid

their jobs if they vote for president obama. have- jennie bowser jen something to say about this issue? host: are other initiatives that directly deal with the voting? guest: absolutely. this year there's a voter id measure on the ballot in minnesota. the legislature referred that issue to voters. it is something that was vetoed by the governor last year during the legislative session. and so the minnesota legislature has decided to sort of go around the governor and avoid a potential veto and put it straight to voters this year. and as to the attempt of a voter suppression, some states to provide time off from work to vote. and in all states, voting as private, you do not have to tell your boss who you voted for. host: on our line for republicans -- caller: my understanding is that no federal law can be contradicted by a state law. now, if the federal government -- what happens of marijuana is approved in another state, colorado. thank you. guest: thank you. i am from golden, good to hear town.ichaemy home marijuana is illegal under federal law. and the states that have legalized medical ma

to persuade voters in this incredibly close election. >> reporter: with the campaign largely on hold, president obama hunkered down at the white house prepared the nation monday for what could be sandy's long-lasting impact. >> the public needs to prepare for the fact this this is going to take a long time for us to clean up. the good news is we will clean up, and we will get through this. >> reporter: the president awoke monday in orlando for what was supposed to be a one-day three-state blitz along side former president clinton. instead, he and aides called an audible and headed back to washington to focus on the storm. at the midday briefing, mr. obama insisted the campaign was not on his mind. >> i'm worried about the impact on families, and i'm worried about the impact on our first responders. i'm worried about the impact on our economy and on transportation. the election will take care of itself next week. >> meanwhile, for much of monday mitt romney tried to walk a fine line, balancing campaigning in ohio and iowa with compassion for storm victims. in ohio he appealed for amer

. it is proof that the republican party is tilted right. if from the beach obama then it will be because he has won a lot of independent voters to moved from party the party election to election. to me the best evidence that the tea party movement is not here to stay, at least matured, it has entered the bloodstream is by the behavior, the voting behavior of congress. you see, you know, for example, the ryan budget. you know, both times, in 2011 and 12 when it came up for a vote, all these republicans who previously voted against it now vote for it. the reason for this is that if they fail to vote for it there will be primary by someone who will get to their right. in fact, one of the people that i read about in the buck is a moderate republican named joann emerson and misery. and she voted against a couple of things that, you know, were not -- or firing behavior was not deemed sufficiently right wing. but some things saying hey, here is what the primary. as of that sort of behavior strikes fear into the arts of a lot of legislators. >> and if governor robin is a response to that from the tea p

, senator bob casey was saying about growing this -- being in lockstep with president obama, well, senator, your voting record indicates something a little bit different. you vote with the president over 90% of the time, close to 95. but the voters in pennsylvania, they want a leader. and how can you sit in the united states senate and your party controls it, and you haven't passed a budget in over three years? casey: that's not true, but -- smith: that is true. but we will go on. and you have voted to raise the debt ceiling. you know, we need, we need problem solvers. we need to get this economy roaring again. and your one term in the united states you have voted seven different times to raise the debt ceiling over $7.5 trillion. and not once have i heard where you came forward with, okay, here is how we are going to grow this economy, here is how we're going to get deficit spending stopped, and here is how we will start paying down the national debt. i have brought forth a plan, and at least let's talk about that. but just to keep raising the debt on our children, that's not the answer.

already voted. as you can see early voters 50% voting for president obama. obama, 44% for mitt romney. election day that means mitt romney has to get 53% of the vote in florida if he's going to win. so that is a pretty hefty tag to run up. that's all according to the obama campaign. in iowa over a third of voters have already voted there. and among those early voters, you can see 64% of those are supporting barack obama. 35% of them are supporting mitt romney. and that means that mitt romney is going to need to win 59% of election-day voters. in north carolina, nearly half of all ballots have already been cast. and of those who have already been cast, 58% of those early voters favor the president. 41% of those favor mitt romney. so mitt romney is going to need to win 57% of north carolina on election day. we're seeing that pattern play out in the other swing states, too, like nevada, virginia, wisconsin. so the republicans are trying to make up ground. in florida we're seeing this because republican leaders are on a two-day bus tour promoting early voting. here is romney florida campa
